The manufacturing industry has been challenged with bridging the skills gap in its workforce. There is an increasing need to develop skilled, trained workforce that can meet the demands of this highly intensive industry.
In this webinar, Thomas Peters will discuss the current manufacturing situation in the country. He will describe how we are currently witnessing a definite revival through the Reshoring Initiative though manufacturers are hamstrung by a lack of readily available skilled labor.
With the help of a case study, Thomas will explain how to combat this skilled labor shortage through innovations in training. He will relate how a company that started out as a tool and die shop combated skilled labor shortage by evolving into a training center, supplying the Chicagoland manufacturers with the needed pipeline of talent. Additionally, he will go over NIMS and MSSC (portable national industry recognized credentials) that manufacturers can rely in with their hiring talent as well as federal grants that several employers can take advantage of.
